Google Google have created a new HTTP-based protocol "SPDY" (pronounced "Speedy") to solve the problem of the client-server latency with HTTP. "We want to continue building on the web's tradition of experimentation and optimization, to further support the evolution of websites and browsers. So over the last few months, a few of us here at Google have been experimenting with new ways for web browsers and servers to speak to each other, resulting in a prototype web server and Google Chrome client with SPDY support."

Please drop what you're doing, sacrifice your personal time, and give free resources so that Google can make their next several billion dollars. (Suckers)

How so? It just looks like yet more of Google pimping students for its own purposes...

Alternatively you can spend your time rooting for a commercial company that cares nothing about you, do their QA work for them and not get paid for that either while they're making billions.
